Administrative and Reduced Opposition Procedure Now


Saudi Arabia has updated its opposition procedure from a legal to a purely administrative proceeding with the adoption of the Gulf Cooperation Council Trademark Law in the country. The oppositions are now filed with the Trademark Office instead of the Board of Grievances (first instance court) which used to be the case.

Further, the opposition period has been reduced from 90 to 60 days accordingly from the last publication date in the Official Gazette, not extendable.
